- The benefits to the whole supply chain
- How digitalisation can assist with modern methods of construction
- Building in more efficient ways
- The impacts technology will have on the Future of Construction
- Changes to culture of working
- How data can benefit client, contractor and supply chain
- Protection from cyber threats
- Value of BIM and Digital Tech
- How to reskill your work force in BIM
- Where to go for more information and resources
Digital in Construction Summit will provide a full day of thought provoking seminar sessions catering for all levels. Industry’s experts will take you through todays leading issues and offer exclusive insights into the very best solutions ready for you to implement into your organisation.

Registration and Networking
Opening remarks from the chair by Mark Bew, Chairman, BIM Task Group
Smart data, smarter construction
Once again reiterating the idea that digital construction isn’t just about geometry – we could get lots of good case studies on performance data, telemetry, specification, and AI, as opposed to 3D and AR and VR animations. There’s lots of connecting threads around big data and the kinds of organisations now getting interested in smart cities – Cisco, HP, Microsoft etc.

Digital Construction Manager
The McAvoy Group
Lorraine McMorrow is Digital Construction Manager for The McAvoy Group, one of the UK’s leading offsite construction specialists. She is responsible for managing the implementation and development of the Group’s digital construction strategy to meet the needs of its diverse customer base.
BIM Strategy Manager
High Speed Two (HS2) Limited
As the Building Information Modelling (BIM) Strategy Manager at HS2, Sonia is responsible for the strategic and consistent implementation of BIM across the programme with a view to increasing efficiency through design, construction, testing, operations and maintenance. Through digital disruption and innovation her aim is to push the boundaries beyond BIM to enhance traditional ways of working and build a true data-driven culture for HS2 and the wider industry.
Prior to HS2, Sonia helped Transport for London (TfL) to achieve BIM capability by developing and utilising standardised processes for the production, management and delivery of asset information. As a student she looked up to the likes of Larry Page, Ray Kurzweil and other computer scientists and futurists and hoped one day she could grow in the business work and apply Computer Sciences to everyday business to make it more effective. Today, she applies her theoretical grounding in Computer and Information Sciences and practical knowledge in BIM in the Rail and Construction industry.
Her passion is in bettering our business lives and simplifying the process of decision making through digitisation, standardisation, collaboration and use of latest technology, while keeping an eye on future developments.
She holds a PhD in Computer Sciences and BIM, a master degree in Business Information Systems Management and a BSc in Computer Networks Technology. She is a member of the CIOB and INCOSE and she actively supports the wider industry in the way of working groups, round tables, guest lectures and presentations. To her this is not just a job, it’s part of a visionary quest to make a real difference in the industry.
